NBA players such as Amar'e Stoudemire, Dwyane Wade and Russell Westbrook are well-known off the court for their flashy fashion. And thanks to Wall Street Journal style reporter Elizabeth Holmes, we now know which beauty products keep some of the league's most stylish athletes looking good while going hard in the paint.
Holmes went deep into locker rooms, peeked inside backpacks and discovered some pretty surprising NBA baller beauty secrets.
Los Angeles Clippers center Deandre Jordan is "always powder-fresh during the games" because he spritzes his armpits with the aerosol form of Secret deodorant. And he keeps his mane clean with "mainly pink" Herbal Essences shampoo and conditioner. Meanwhile, curly-haired Cleveland Cavaliers center Anderson Varejao maintains his locks with a curl amplifier by Catwalk. We're impressed!
Knicks' Stoudemire has a pre-game grooming routine that includes slathering on Bath and Body Works Stress Relief. eucalyptus-and-spearmint-scented body lotion (That description alone makes us calm.) But Indiana Pacers' player Roy Hibbert prefers Carol's Daughter Shea Soufflé almond cookie-scented moisturizer. He told WSJ, "I put it on after the games whenever I'm ashy. It just smells really good." You gotta love a man that takes care of his skin and hair.
Head over to the Wall Street Journal for more NBA grooming secrets.
